Discover everything about our products and get inspired!

Verstegen Spices & Sauces B.V. has been a family-owned business in Rotterdam since it was founded in 1886. Today, the fourth generation is leading the way. To us, herbs and spices create the base for great flavour. That is why Verstegen only supplies the highest quality herbs and spices. We get the best ingredients from the countries of origin, where we have a unique and longlasting cooperation with local farmers. And we are proud of it! As Verstegen keeps the entire chain in its own hands, we can ensure a fair, transparent and sustainable chain from farmer to consumer.
